"Capote and going Cold-piggey...

What was this week like? Well, I learned much during this week and I also tried to break some bad habits. Hopefully I am strong enough to maintain it.

First off the bat, I watched the movie Capote and I was stunned. Stunned on how good an actor Philip Seymour Hoffman is. My gosh... is that the person I always mistake for Jack Black! I saw him in the Talented Mr. Ripley and Red Dragon but that's it... Capoosh! no lingering thoughts about the actor. But in Capote... he really deserved that Oscar.

What another viewer commented is so true for this movie...
"The film is so good and so intriguing that questions such as that, and what happened to the writer that Capote lived with? and did Harper Lee write anything beyond "To Kill a Mockingbird?" and did Capote's presence at the execution lead to his alcoholism, his lack of further writing, and eventually his death, and other questions will send viewers to Google as soon as they get home. "Capote""

As soon as I went home to my own PC, I googled Truman and true enough... date of Birth... September 30, 1924. The guy was a Libran. Whoooshh... I rest my case.

Some interesting information, Harper Lee, Truman's friend and writer of "To Kill a Mockingbird" didn't write another book again. It was widely speculated that Truman ghosted and wrote that book himself. Well, I don't know, but maybe...
I am going Cold piggey, I am trying to abstain from drinking coffee and "minimizing" intake of carbohyrdates. I can't say I am stopping from eating one of my favourite food groups (Chocolate is the one of top of the list of my fave food groups). Why? Well, it's my knee. Yup, it's still hurting and given the history of knee-related injuries in my family, I better take care of it. After a week of no coffee, I find that it doesn't hurt anymore.

For how long can I maintain this? I don't know but one thing I found out, in dieting you need a support group and thank heavens that the summer beach season is fast approaching, I have many friends to stop me from overeating and gauging myself in coffee and chocolates.

Amen! Oohh... lastly, gosh... I remember now that I can be really cranky when hungry... hahaha =p

Hello, it's me!

It's been awhile since I have shared something on this space about my thoughts and my life. Well, where do I start? Maybe just like an old good friend, I will try to give you some highlights on the past years when I was not blogging.

The biggest thing that happened to me so far was I got my Australian citizenship. I know right? I know that it may not be a big deal to others but for me, this is something that I have tried to work on for the past 5 years.  My kababayans might say that I am ungrateful, but we cannot discount the fact that with a blue passport from a country like Australia, I can travel to many countries - visa free without immigration officers trying to catch my eye and check if I am planning to do something illegal on their country.

No offense, but every time I stand on the immigration line going into another country, my heart always work double/triple time because I am too anxious to be deported back to my country even if I know that I have the proper visa.

The Lesbian Lifestyle

It's been about eight (8) years since I came out as a lesbian. So much has changed since then. I never in my wildest dream thought that I will be with someone who loves me as much as my partner does and I never realized that I am capable of so much love.

I gained more than 50 pounds. You'll never realize it but the weight creeps in. It seems to be proportional to the amount of happiness you're gaining. Thus, if weight is the price I need to pay for being happy so be it! I would rather be plump and gay than thin and grumpy. :)

All of my friends are straight women and gay guys. I have a few lesbian friends (about 3 I think) and that's it. Not having enough lesbian friends is not a major problem for me since I don't think I fit into the lesbian lifestyle.

1.) I am not a radical feminist.
2.) I don't really think that all men are evil (ok some are but we also have evil women :)).
3.) I like green jokes and other politically incorrect jokes as …
